Don't Fall For This Netflix Email Scam Targeting Millions Worldwide

  • Millions of Netflix subscribers have been targeted by a new scam

A well designed Netflix email targets some of the 110 million Netflix subscribers worldwide!

The company says the membership restart scam starts with a personalized email that appears to come from Netflix with the subject line, "Your suspension notification".

Netflix advises users to be aware of phishing attempts on its website, saying hackers "may create fake websites that look like Netflix, or send emails that imitate us and ask you for personal information".

In other words, if you get a note like this from Netflix, or anyone else, don't just go clicking on any links inside.

The page looks legitimate with a Netflix logo and popular Netflix shows like The Crown and House of Cards, Deadline reports. Moreover, you should be very cautious while opening emails and avoid clicking any link blindly. It might be helpful while spotting a Netflix email scam.


A scam warning for all Netflix users.

MailGuard called the phishing scam "relatively well designed" because of its ability to generate "individualized messages with specific recipient data". Therefore, the customer should check emails carefully to separate the real one from the fake ones.

The company has reportedly stated that they take "the security of our members' accounts seriously and employs numerous proactive measures to detect fraudulent activity to keep the Netflix service and members' accounts secure".

MailGuard reminds users to hover your mouse over links to check the domain, and don't click on unfamiliar domains.
